MARGARET MITCHELL
The author of Gone With the Wind thanks her friend, literary critic Edwin Granberry, for the favorable review and discusses her good health, signs name in black ink
Typed letter signed: "Margaret", 1p, 7x11. Atlanta, Georgia, 1937 March 8. On her personal letterhead to Edwin. In full: "This is just a line to tell you how marvelous the article looked. My family and friends liked it so much and already strangers are beginning to write me about it. I am enclosing one letter which came this morning which I thought might interest you. Please let me have it back. The next time I am at the Library I am going to look up your General Granberry. He sounds most interesting. And if I find anything I will let you know. Things are better here since I got my office without a telephone. Am fattening up and cannot button any of my clothes. Last summer I told you and Herschel about a young country boy from down near Jonesboro who had written one of my favorite books. He has reissued it (with a statement from me copied from his autograph album). I hope you will read it aloud to get the best effect. John has been back at work for a week and is feeling much better. We both send our best." On July 30, 1936, Selznick International Pictures had purchased MITCHELL's epic novel, Gone With the Wind, for a record $50,000. The film later captured the 1939 Academy Award for Best Picture. Mitchell (1900-1949) was awarded the 1937 Pulitzer Prize in Fiction for her sweeping novel set in the Civil War and post-War era.Edwin was EDWIN GRANBERRY, who had written one of the first complimentary reviews of Gone With the Wind for the "New York Sun" (June 30, 1936). Mitchell and her husband, JOHN MARSH,became close friends with Edwin and his wife Mabel, and they corresponded regularly. Herschel was HERSCHEL BRICKELL, another literary critic who had praised Mitchell's epic work. The article to which she refers here was likely "The Private Life of Margaret Mitchell", which was written by Granberry and appeared in the March 13, 1937 issue of "Collier's" magazine. The demand for details about Mitchell's life had been insatiable, and Mitchell had asked Granberry to write an "official" article about her. Lightly creased. Fine condition.
